|More stunning views|

UPDATE: Sunday 2 October
We've had such a great time! Cumbria was absolutely wonderful. After Dufton, we had gigs in Boldron (technically Durham) and Armathwaite. Full houses at both gigs again and absolutely lovely audiences as well as very gracious and helpful hosts. All the great things you hear about northern hospitality are all true!
|We encountered several streams... and lots of mud! Those sequinned wellies wouldn't have stood a chance!|
Then last night we drove to Wooler in Northumberland and played to a packed and very warm (in both senses of the word!) audience. The weather was so warm that I didn't need a coat or jacket even at midnight. Once more we were looked after very well but the well organised hosts. The weather has turned a bit today but the views and autumn colours are truly spectacular.
Tonight is our last show in Stocksfield. It will be sad to leave the countryside but I'm looking forward to having a break before my band and I head up to Wakefield Jazz Club on the 14 October. I just can't keep away from the north these days!
